"Hi, I’m Zoran. I’m going to show you how to set-up rights in Endpoint Protector 4.

First of all, we have to log in to the Endpoint Protector server to this user interface. Then we go in the menu on the left to Endpoint Rights and as you can see here rights can be set per device, per user, per computer, per group or globally for all the users and computers in the network. Now after the Endpoint Protector Client software is installed, every port and every device is blocked by Endpoint Protector by default, except Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; Wi-Fi is used obviously for Internet access, while Bluetooth is mostly used for keyboards and mice. So, this means that if I connect the USB device to my computer the device will be blocked. We are going to see a pop-up message in the right corner saying that an unauthorized device was connected to this computer. If I try to see or access the device in Finder, I’m not able to do that.

What’s also important to know here is that there are some priorities. Global Rights have the lowest priority. Then come the Group Rights with higher priority than Global Rights, Computer and User Rights with higher priority than Group Rights or Global Rights, and finally the Device Rights with the highest priority. So, if I will change the rights for USB storage devices for this group to Allow Access, the effective rights on my computer for USB storage devices will be Allow Access because Group Rights have a higher priority than Global Rights. Now I will open the Finder window again and I will be able to see the device and all the data which is on the device. If we go further to Computer Rights and set the rights for USB storage devices on my computer to Read-Only Access, then the effective rights for USB storage devices on my computer will be Read-Only Access because Computer Rights have higher priority than Group Rights or Global Rights. I can still see the device in Finder but I’m not able to copy data to the device because it’s on Read-Only Access.

This is how we set-up rights in Endpoint Protector.
Thank you for watching!"
